Coping With Eczema During Cold Winter Months

Published on October 1, 2015

As colder weather finally arrives, many people will find the cold and dry weather challenging for their skin. Many skin conditions become more problematic as winter approaches. These may include rashes that are autoimmune, allergic, infectious, or irritant in nature.

Many individuals have a tendency toward atopic dermatitis (AD) or eczema that worsens in the winter months. AD is a genetically based skin rash that generally worsens in the colder months but also commonly flares in the skin fold areas of the arms, legs, neck, and chest in the summer months. It usually appears as itchy, red, inflamed patches in skin fold areas.
